Inspired by Amanda's post here, I thought I would share the things that I don't like or understand that everyone else seems to.
Peanut butter and jelly.
I don't mind peanut butter but the whole peanut butter and jam thing is american and no thank you that is just WEIRD. Okay it's not weird, it's just different but ew.
Pumpkin flavoured anything sweet.
I like pumpkin soup, but you can keep your pumpkin drinks and pumpkin pie.
Everyone tells me one day I will like this, but I have always hated coffee. I hate the taste. Caffeine has never affected me, so I won't need it for that either. I hate the smell and the taste. The only one time I have ever drank coffee is when I was very, very drunk and Megan made me so that I could 'sober up' before going out that night. Classy, we were.
I used to like wine. Then I drank like 2.5 litres on an empty stomach and we're not friends anymore. Sometimes you might see me with a glass (bein' real on the gram) but I almost never finish it and it always makes me do that alcohol shudder. I do like sparkling wine though.
What. I know. Thing is, I don't not like Target, I'm just not in love with it like everyone else. I can go in there for one thing and walk out with one thing. Of course, I can go in there for nothing and buy all the things, but I can do that anywhere - it's a shopaholic thing, not a Target thing.
Big bang theory or how I met your mother or the walking dead or insert-popular-tv-show here.
I'm really not big on TV, though there are a couple of shows I'll watch, they aren't normally the super popular ones. I don't hate any of these shows - big bang and how I met your mother are fine but they aren't as good as the show they are trying to replace (Friends in my opinion). I tried the walking dead but I couldn't get past the first season. Not my jam. I did get into Scandal, but I haven't watched this season.
Real housewives of anything.
I tried to watch one of these and I just couldn't get into it. Not my jam. I love the gifs though.
They're cute on some people, but rings in general aren't my thing so midi rings definitely aren't.
I've tried it myself, I've had a spray tan, it's just not for me. I always feel like I look a bit orange and I prefer the way a natural tan looks on me but I don't like the whole skin cancer / look like a leather bag thing that comes with it. I don't mind being pale.
Painting my nails.
I suck at painting my own nails - no matter what I do, I ruin them. If elephants fly and I don't ruin them myself - they chip or flake within hours. Even when I go to a nail place, my nails never last. I don't understand the point.
I get why people want to switch and I do agree that some wordpress blogs look better than the average blogger blog, but.. I've seen some awesome, gorgeous blogger blogs and I like blogger. I've never really had any huge issues and I don't see myself switching. That's just me though (as is this whole post, and er.. blog). I don't care if you use Wordpress (or Disqus) but I can with almost 100% certainty say I never will.
Yeah, they're pretty, and yeah they smell nice, and yeah they are cheap at Trader Joes. But they die. I don't see the point. You know what doesn't die? Clothes. Clothes are pretty. Books. Books smell pretty. Neither of these die (unless they are crap, in which case you should get your money back but you can't do that with flowers, can you?).
Do you like any of these things, or are you in the not cool crowd with me?
